Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Nova Esquerra de l'Eixample - AIRES DE BARCELONA, EIXAMPLE

Sunny 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 80 m2 Terrace, Walking Distance to Fira Barcelona

***** REDUCED WINTER RATES (PLUS FREE TOURS) ON OUR FABULOUS RENTAL PROPERTY *****

*** AN ADDITIONAL 35% (FROM THE ALREADY REDUCED PRICE) WILL BE TAKEN OFF YOUR RENTAL DATES FOR THE MONTHS OF DECEMBER THROUGH FEBRUARY AFTER YOU SUBMIT AN INQUIRY ***

( Please Note: X-mas & New Year's Weeks excluded. )

Our newly-remodeled and extremely welcoming penthouse apartment, Aires de Barcelona, combines all of the modern conveniences with a unique design and a fabulous extra large (eighty-square meter) private terrace complete with fruit trees AND stunning views of the city and Montjuic. The apartment sleeps four: 2 bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed, and another with two full beds. This penthouse flat is a classic of brick and wood, typical rolling Catalonian style ceiling and access though a period elevator! The dining room and small adjunct office are all filled with light from the big windows that overlook Gran Via de Cortes Catalanes down below and the skylight above…


The penthouse's location, the barrio of Eixample, is characterized by long straight streets, a strict grid pattern crossed by wide avenues, and square blocks with chamfered corners (named illes in Catalan, manzanas con chaflán in Spanish). This was a visionary, pioneering design by Ildefons Cerdà, who considered traffic and transport along with sunlight and ventilation in coming up with his characteristic octagonal blocks, where the streets broaden at every intersection making for greater visibility, better ventilation and (today) some short-stay parking space. The grid pattern remains as a hallmark of Barcelona. The important needs of the inhabitants were incorporated into his plan, which called for markets, schools, hospitals every so many blocks. Today, most of the markets remain open in the spots they have been from the beginning. You will find something to suit every taste in this area, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also a good number of restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some of the nightlife Barcelona is so famous for. (World renowned TICKETS is 750 meters - a mere 8 minute walk- away!!!) In fact, there are so many tapas bars and restaurants in the vicinity of the penthouse - and in Eixample in general- that you will find it hard to decide where to have your meal! Likewise, you will find it difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out the pastries and breads at the local bakeries located around every corner of this city's most welcoming neighborhood... :-)

Some parts of the Eixample were influenced by Modernista architects, chief among whom was Antoni Gaudí. His work in the Eixample includes the Casa Milà (nicknamed La Pedrera) and the Casa Batlló, both of which are on the wide Passeig de Gràcia, as well as the Sagrada Familia.

The apartment's location, right on the main city thoroughfare of Gran Via and within a few steps of the L1 metro line, allows you to be at all of Barcelona's famous landmarks within the blink of an eye. The Sagrada Familia Basílica is, for example, only seven minutes - five metro stops - away. And famous Paseo de Gracia, where Casa Batlló and La Pedrera are located, is in the same barrio of Eixample as our property. The Paseo and Gaudí houses are thus only a three minute - or three metro stops - ride away! Plus Plaza España, Fira Barcelona, the new commercial center Arenas de Barcelona, Montjuïc, and its 'Magic Fountain' are just a ten minute walk (or one 1 minute metro) ride away!

***** PLUS, for a limited time, in order to celebrate our new listing on the VRBO/HOMEAWAY site, we are offering one FREE CITY TOUR to our guests to be conducted by one of our local guides. You can chose from any of a number of historic, romantic, Jewish-heritage, and even intrigue-filled ghost walking tour options offered by our experts (fluent in english, spanish, french, serbian, italian and catalan). We will provide information on all the available alternatives at the time of your booking so that you may chose and participate at your leisure after your arrival in Barcelona. The option to book other tours (for an unbeatably low fee) will, of course, be available by request as well. [Please note that the tours do not include the costs of admission to the specific city locations that may charge a fee for the same.] *****

Why MIGUEL F. GARCIA chose Eixample

Aires De Barcelona's location within the barrio of Eixample, and within steps of the L1 metro/subway station, offers unique and easy access to all of the city's main attractions. In addition, it's large penthouse terrace offers incredible views of the city and Montjuïc, and the perfect spot for sunning, reading or dining al fresco, and even entertaining groups of old acquaintances (or newly-made Catalonian friends :-) ) inside or out…!

You will find something to suit every taste in Eixample, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also innumerable restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some of the nightlife Barcelona is so famous for. (World renowned TICKETS is 750 meters - a mere 8 minute walk- away!!!) In fact, there are so many tapas bars and restaurants in the vicinity of the penthouse - and in Eixample in general- that you will find it hard to decide where to have your meal! Likewise, you will find it difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out the pastries and breads at the local bakeries located around every corner... :-)

What makes this apartment unique

Besides it's unique location and large terrace with magnificent views of the city of Barcelona and Montjuïc, our expert local guides offer unique tours encompassing the different features of the city: from the Roman- to the Gothic-period historic districts, to the Gaudí architectural marvels located throughout, to the chic shopping and gastronomic districts, to the more distinctive Jewish heritage and ghost tours. Our expert guides can, of course, conduct special tours developed to match our guests individual requests!

Great location, great place, great stay

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located with easy access to public transportation, this apt. was very cool in every way. The rooftop deck offers some great views of Barcelona and you are only footsteps away from some great food, spirits and the metro. Milena, the woman who met us with the keys upon arrival was a wonderful source of knowledge, and while we did not take her up on the free tours she offered in the city, when I return, I plan to do so. Barcelona is an amazing city and this apt. was the icing on the cake.

Owner's Response: Dear Ray, Thank you so much for your review, and thanks for your kind words about Milena. We do love the fact that the property is mere steps from the metro (placing all of the city's attractions within its reach). Thank you as well for highlighting the property's crown jewel, it's outstanding terrace and it's beautiful city views. Please come back and stay with us again next time you visit Barcelona!

Fantastic apartment with stunning views in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do justice to this apartment. We loved the experience and can't say enough good things about it. A few highlights:

The apartment is stylishly simple, with an open feel, with a dining room/office area on the entry level and a living room/kitchen and bedrooms down a half flight of stairs. It is fully equipped, with modern amenities. The terrace on the entry level is stunning, overlooks Montjuic, and has 180 degree views. It was too cold for us to spend much time outside, but even the views from inside the apartment were stunning.

The location is fantastic, and we were able to comfortably walk almost everywhere. The metro is across the street, and there are many good to excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. A big grocery is 1 1/2 blocks away, and there are 3 smaller grocery stores, numerous pastry shops and a good bar/restaurant on the same block. Casanova, a gourmet grocer which sells excellent prepared food, wine, and cheeses, is 1/2 block away. We did takeout dinners from them 3 nights.

Support services were superb. Milena met us at the apartment when we arrived and again when we left (at 5 a.m.!) and gave us two excellent tours of the city. She really added to the experience--informative, charming and helpful--my wife and I thought she was great.

Best place in a city we've ever rented!

We will definitely stay there again, and recommend without reservation it to all of our friends. What a cool place!

Owner's Response: Dear Steve, Thank you so much for your wonderfully thorough review. We do tend to highlight the fact that the property is located in the middle of Barcelona's Eixample, filled with the most amazing combination of magnificent restaurants and tapas bars we have ever come across in our travels. What we forget to point out is that the apartment is also surrounded by all sorts of terrific bakeries, chocolate shops and gourmet markets that make for a superb "carry out" experience. :-) We hope you will come back to Barcelona and stay with us during warmer weather so you get to really enjoy and make the most of our wonderful terrace! Cariños, The Garcia Family

Excellent location and views!

  • 5 of 5

This roof top apartment was well equipped and provided exceptional views of the city! Less than a block to the metro so it was easy to get around town. There is a small grocery next door for quick shopping. Be careful there though as we were overcharged once they noticed we were on holiday. I quickly fixed the issue in person once it was discovered. I would highly recommend this location for your stay or my next stay.

Great flat in the Heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week in late October and enjoyed our stay immensely! The flat is located on the top floor of one of the many quaint apartment buildings that line both sides of the 'Grand Via' or Grand Avenue -- one of the main streets in Barcelona. There is an old-fashion elevator (1920's??) that gives you a nice slow ride up and down to the flat. Once there, you can step out on your private deck to take in the views of the city. Most prominent is the view to the southwest of the Montjuic area. You can get almost anywhere from this location, as its mere steps from the 'Rockafort' subway station on the L1 line. We bought the 4-day Metro pass and went all over the city....it's a very nice subway system. There is a great little cafe a block and a half away called 'Ugot'. We had a great breakfast there! There is a Sushi place on the corner, several other cafe's, a 'Supermercado' or supermarket a block away with inexpensive Spanish red wines and 'Jamon Iberico' (Spanish Ham) -- great stuff! The staff was very helpful in pointing out places to go and things to do. All in all it was a great experience, and I hope to visit them again sometime soon!

Owner's Response: Dear John, We just love to hear that our guests enjoyed every aspect of their stay at Aires De Barcelona as much as you did! As you were able to tell, Milena and Maribel work very hard to make certain that our guests have an unforgettable experience during their stays at our property. Thank you for your kind words, and thank you for highlighting Aires De Barcelona's terrace as well as how it provides ready access to all of the city's main attractions. Who knows, maybe you will give us another chance to host your family in Barcelona in the not-too-distant future… :-) Muchísimos Cariños, The Garcia Family

Great apartment, Great location and phenomenal views

  • 5 of 5

Hi Miguel, My wife and I have a fantastic time staying at your apartment. It was my wife's first trip to Barcelona and she thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour with Milena. I have since recommended the apartment to several of my friends heading to Barcelona. This is definitely my favorite place to stay in Barcelona

Cheers

Richard

Great place to stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as described. It's very close to a metro stop so getting around the city is easy. The apartment is clean, bright and furnished with all the essentials. The private rooftop terrace is lovely. Two grocery stores are conveniently located a couple blocks away and there are several restaurants nearby. I highly recommend this apartment.

Adding to the penthouse's convenience, it is located within 6 miles of the Barcelona Airport. That is about a 15 to 20 minute - and less than 25 euro - taxi drive. There are also buses to nearby Plaza España and a train from the airport if you would rather not use the taxi service.
